I am including the contents of dmesg for your advise. Please understand, the computer/ethernet adapter is not really on a network. All I intend to do is share a printer. The computer does not have an assigned ip address. I entered netconf and tried to enable bootp but the reply was that I have no network device. I know very little about networks so please assume nothing. Thanks so much for your help.
